    Glad you find it helpful! :goodvibes

    Both resorts turn out beautiful cakes. The Contemporary seems to charge slightly less for its cakes, if that helps.


    Thanks for posting about your experience!

    A three-tier is $980 and serves 85 people. A two-tier is $450 and serves 50 people. You might want to look into a 1-tier version, which would cost around $250. They do a mini-cake version, but it isn't all wonky-shaped like you think of a Mad Hatter cake. It's more about the decorations they put on it. That'll cost anywhere from $30-$50, depending on decorations, and only feed 2 or 3.

    A one-tier Mad Hatter like the ones Disneymama01 describes looks like this:

    A Mad Hatter mini cake looks like this:

    Whoa.... That would be one expensive cake! I thought it would only be around 500 - 600. Maybe I'll stick with a 1 or 2 tier. Thanks for the help.

    Two questions

    1.) I'm staying at POFQ and would like a chocolate cake with white chocolate mousse and fresh strawberries. Doable?

    2.) Has anyone heard of/seen a cake with a Sword in the Stone/Madam Mim theme? How would that be executed? Would it have to be fondant?

    Yes!

    I feel like I saw one many years ago... you might check out the links to earlier threads in the first post of this thread. If you don't want fondant, they could do a screen print on buttercream. But even if you do order fondant, they won't be allowed to sculpt her, so you might want to go for a more interpretive cake or have a screen print of her on a standing piece of white chocolate. The creative design is really up to what you and the pastry chef work out.

    Ok, I may have gone a bit overboard on cake ordering. I ordered from CR and wasn't able to get exactly what I wanted so I ordered from GF as well. Oh well, no worries.

    I wanted Stitch, but I wanted it ToT Stitch. CR said they could do Stitch but not ToT Stitch, so I have a mini wedding cake with Stitch for that one. A couple of days later I decided to try GF. Pat was thinking she could do it and was sending a message of to legal to be sure. So, I ordered that one too. Not to mention I ordered the slipper dessert on a specialized royal package at CRT. Just a bit overboard. :)

    Hi everyone!

    I am trying to decide which cake filling to get with vanilla 2 layer 8" cake for my daughters birthday in August.

    I was going to post a poll, but I can't remember how. Sorry.

    That particular one was made by the Grand Floridian, but most Deluxe resort bakeries should be able to create something similar if you send in that photo. Mini cakes start around $30 and go up, depending on complexity.

    People seem to like Disney's fruit fillings, like the tropical mousse. My favorite with vanilla cake is peanut butter cup filling!

    Hi Carrie, The options Pat gave us are very limited. Perhaps because it is not a wedding cake? I guess I should've been more specific.

    white butter cream
    chocolate butter cream
    white mousse
    Dark Choco mousse
    custard with strawberries.

    I am leaning toward dark chocolate mousse with vanilla cake.

    These are the standard options. Fruit mousse is also a standard option in 10" cakes. Special fillings can be available upon request and vary among bakeries.

    Thanks, I made a reservation at the Grand Floridian Cafe so I could order the mini castle cake for DD. But I might do the mini Mad Hatter instead. Do you know what the butterfly is mad of? :)
